I’ve Been Nuked!!

May 7, 2009
Right, I’ve been done!  Took the capsule….now I must stay away from airports for a few months, or I’ll set off the alarms!!
The driver arrived at two-forty, and took me, via the scenic route, to Nottingham City Hospital’s radiotherapy department.  I didn’t have to wait long before I was called in for treatment.  Meanwhile, the driver went to pick up a lady from the other hospital, before coming back for me.
It didn’t take very long at all….check my details, run through precautions that I have to take over the next few days and weeks…then take me through to where I would be given the tiny capsule and a cup of water.  I was handed a heavy lead cylinder that had a tiny glass vial inside, from which I had to take the capsule…gulp…gone!  That was it!  No side effects, just go home and follow the guidelines that I’d been given.
So, I’m going to sleep on the sofa until Monday.  As Robert is off work while he is wanted for jury service, he has been going to bed early, while I have stayed up watching TV or playing on t’ ‘puter!  So it’s easier for me to have the sofa.  I have to keep my crockery and cutlery seperate until Saturday, and wash them up seperately.  Also until the 11th, I have to avoid places of entertainment and journeys on public transport of over an hour.
I also have to avoid contact with children aged 5-16 yrs until the 18th…children aged 3-5 yrs until the 23…children unde 3 and pregnant women until 28th.  The only place I am likely to encounter these are on the bus…a mere ten to fifteen minutes, so will have to move if any get on and try to sit next to me!!  I will have to explain why, and show them my yellow card!!!
I have a bottle of water in the fridge, so I said I will put my name on it…Robert did it for me!  He put ‘Sandi’s nuked water’ on it and drew that nuclear waste-type symbol in it!!!  Har har de har har!!!!
Oh, and by the way…he changed my Messenger message to ‘Just gone off to get nuked’….very funny!!!

    I hope the treatment works, too…though it will take a few months. It doesn\’t work straight away, as the hormone levels will drop slowly back to normal, or to under-active….in which case I will need Thyroxine. I\’ve got my normal appointment with the specialist next week, so will have to phone up and see about changing the appointment…yet again! Time will tell…!!The bottle is funny, PF…I told Robert that he should put a proper black and yellow sticker on it! LOL! ;-D

    Does it have any convenient side effects such as nuking all bugs and nasties in your system..would be handy to be impervious to flu at the moment.

    That\’s a good point, Anne…it would be good if any nasty bugs were zapped.Robert also got two slices of bread out….just remembered this from earlier…and held them up at me. When I asked why, he told me that I could toast them for him with my laser vision (or whatever super heroes have…!!)

    Mind if I add to the jokes? Do we have to be nice to you now so that you don\’t go blowing a fuse? Sounds like you\’ll glow in the dark. At least you won\’t be needing a torch at night if you do go out.. Glad the easy bit is over and done with. Blimey, I never realised there was so much you would have to take into account afterwards! I hope is all goes without any hitches for you and that it works. I\’ll drink to that!Right then, I\’ve got some meat to defrost, are you up to it or should I use the microwave?Have a great weekend Sandi. xx

    I did try to add that picture to this blog, but it wasn\’t having any of it! I could run up a get-up like that…bright yellow t-shirt and shorts, and a length of electric pink fabric for the cape and trim. I could add the hazardous waste symbols to the wrist-bands and the \’bit in front holding the cape in place\’!

    Bloomin\’ typical! I decided that, because the weather was bright and sunny with only the slightest hint of a breeze, I would go out and continue with my \’pottering\’. Now I am ready, the clouds are taking over, and the wind is getting up….and there is a naighbour\’s family gathering out the back which includes a barking dog and a very vocal small person!!!! So, what do I do? Stay in and clean the bathroom…or go out anyway…? Decisions, decisions…!!!!
